TWO-SWORD MEN OF JAPAN
With Their Disbanding, Comparatively
Few Yeara Ago, the Secret of
As late as 18(SS there were some
400,000 two-sword men In Japan, high

nobles of the land in bands ranging
from two or three, to an. entire army.
When the revolution came the work
of the two-swerd men was done, the
nation was made Into a solid unit and
the strength of tbe blude curriers was
needed at plow and bench.

Using Waste Gas.
Much of our natural gas In this
country Is wasted because the wells
are too far from Industrial ren'.era or
their output too small. This Is par
ticularly the case In Louisiana, Texas,
Wyoming and parts of California.'
The, United States bureau of mines
has been studying the possibilities of
utilising this waste gaa for Uie pro
duction of chloroform aud other chem
icals of value, such as carboti tetra
chloride and methyl chloride. The con
clusions drnwn nre highly favo.-able.
Use of the gas for those iroduct
would be restricted to "dry" gases,
which are of no value for yielding
gasoline. For the the latter purpose
"wet" gasea from wells in Isolated
place are profitably available.
